This is one Japanese dip you probably won't care to sample. Hubert (Reno) is a hard-assed, violence-prone French cop, who is forced to take a vacation. He winds up in Tokyo at the funeral of a woman he loved years before. He also discovers he's been left a screechy punk daughter, Yumi (Hirosue), he didn't know about, a mysterious key, and 200 million (in dollars) in the bank. And then the yakuza get involved. High-concept and fast-paced but not particularly entertaining. French and Japanese with subtitles.
